It is usual for people to take photographs at special events such as award ceremonies, college graduation, birthdays and anniversaries. Knowing how to look your photogenic best enhances those photographs and the pleasure that they bring in future years.
The idea of helping people who were camera-shy came from a request from Bob's partner's daughter-in law to be. " Bob," she said, "You do portrait photography. I'm terrified at how my wedding photos are going to come out. Could you take some photos of me so I can practise posing for the photographer?"
Bob had only just moved from film to digital, so transferring images to the computer was still a precarious process! But it was a revelation. It was a lovely sunny day. So they went out into the garden, took a few shots, popped back in to load them up, saw what was working and what wasn't, went back outside, back inside etc and from a well less than photogenic start, in the space of an hour and a half and a shed load of photos, they were getting really amazing results. We've never looked back. Over the years we've fine tuned the process and added some "nice to do" touches, but the basics are the same, and they always work.
